These three books are what I call my non-fiction hybrids, books that are both memoire and other topics, such as self-help, history and commentary, and writing how-to along with the story of my complicated relationship with writing.
This page contains excerpts and posts about these books-in-progress.
Breaking Radio Silence
“Why do I think and feel the way I do?” It was a simple question I asked myself in the Fall of 2016 though I had no idea what the search for the answers would lead me to. My search took me to the deepest and darkest parts of my mind, my heart, and my soul. It took me to the storage unit of my mind, through all the memories, thoughts, and feelings I’d boxed up and hidden away. As I opened those boxes I broke my silence in my mind, my heart, and my soul. And most of all, I began to believe in my strength, strength that was always there inside me all along.
This is my story of how I broke my silence once and for all.

For me, writing is deeply personal and something that has been a part of my life for so long it’s what I define myself as now.
